A -Golden color, can see clearly through, little head.

S - Label description describes this amber having biscuit like notes, this is certainly true. Not strong in aroma.

T - Quite mild. Surprisingly hoppy, but not overwhelming. Expected it to be sweeter, but still delicious. Well balanced with hints of caramel.

M - Light and crisp. Carbonation is evident. Should certainly be served cold.

O - While ambers are not my favorite, I enjoy this one due to its hoppy flavors. Better on draft, but not a bad option when looking to pick up a pint for a night in at home.

**Maybe a good beer to introduce to friends who are looking to drink "better beers since it is quite mild."
